At our elders meeting we were discussing the need to provide leadership training for potential elders or deacons that haven't yet felt qualified or inspired to serve. Do materials exist?
I am wondering if anyone knows if there is some sort of records or database regarding how many churches in the CRC have made the transition from a traditional Council structure to a model where Elders and Deacons are split into administrative and pastoral type roles?
Does anyone have a good suggestion for a simple and confidential database to track visits with members of their congregation?
What is a pastoral way to handle the information that we have? How do other churches deal with what people see as "sensitive" information?
I am the newly elected president and one member has raised a concern that our executive committee includes both of our pastoral staff. What is the appropriate membership?
